Red Dirt Poetry Festival

Thursday 2 August- Sunday 5 August

Built on the back of the success of The Dirty Word and Central Australia's long and rich love affair with poetry, the Red Dirt Poetry Festival brings together poets and spoken word artists from all over Australia and overseas.

Red Dirt Poetry Festival (RDPF) is a biennial four-day spoken word and poetry celebration in the heart of Australia. Bringing in poets from around the Territory with visiting interstate and international poets, RDPF provides a platform for people to share their stories and experiences. The festival showcases a feast of live and installation poetry.

RDPF 2018 will be the third installment of the successful festival building on the success of the 2014 & 2016 festivals.
